Aruna works as a platform engineer at Mapbox, and likes to think that working in site reliability is akin to gardening. She spends her time mending broken pieces of the existing machinery and creating newer systems in order to make our architecture scalable, robust and usable by every team at Mapbox.

She thinks about how to make background systems visible to the broader Mapbox team, and believes that good documentation is important to creating accessible systems. Before Mapbox, Aruna contributed to the GNOME Foundation and other open source projects, and cares deeply about freedom and openness.
